Materials

100% natural un-dyed and dyed fique from Colombia

Fique is a Colombian fiber commonly used for rug and basket weaving. The fiber comes from the family of agave plants, and like hemp, it does not need any fertilizers or pesticides to grow. Making this fiber an natural organic fiber. It is also a fiber that needs very little water to grow, making it a very resourceful fiber and a great sustainable option for natural fibers.

Care Instructions

For the best lifetime of fique baskets is to keep them dry and indoors. Avoid submerging in water. If used as a planter, I recommend using it as a cache basket, and not as the direct container of soil & water.

If using outdoors, I would recommend in a covered porch/roofed area. Excessive direct exposure to sun could cause natural wear/discoloration over time, but it would take a really long time for that to happen!
